I had to do my glucose testing today. Drank the nasty crap, and 45 min later, I am dizzy, sweating (hot flashes), tired and feeling REALLY bitchy.
Is this normal? After they drew blood, I ate some peanuts and sat in front of the A/C for a while - now I feel better. I still have one heck of a headache though... What happened?

Me too!!!! I failed the one hour. I had a Dr.'s appt. for 7pm last week & they said "oh we'll do it now, it's a non-fasting test don't worry!" Well I ate all day prior to the test and had birthday cake too! So I failed! Any wonder! My last pregnancy I didn't do the one hour at all, just went right to a lab for the three hour and passed then so I am hoping this time. I asked the lady who drew my blood & she said that the one hour that I failed was done too late in the day and the more active you are during the day, the higher your glucose level will be too. I went in for this 3 hour at 8 am & got out about 11:30 am. I was starving and very light headed. Best wishes to you too! :)
